Should the research on Stem Cell continue? Is it over?
Stem cell therapies are not new. Doctors have been performing bone marrow stem cell transplants for decades. But when scientists learned how to remove stem cells from human embryos in 1998, both excitement and controversy ensued. Should this research continue or should we stop?
We should continue stem cell research. Stem cell might be alive, but it have no conscious. It isn't like it is a dog or a bird, which have conscious or feelings. So, why can't we do stem cell research? And stem cell research would help to save a lot of life.
Neonatal stem cells are not the cure-all they were promised to be, and most attempts to use them led to cancer and negative side effects in the adults.
Stem cells derived from adults have led to serious advances in tissue regeneration.
Stem cells using cord blood of infants in bone marrow transplants are actually routine.
Using stem cells from male foreskins from newborns are routinely used in skin grafts.
So it really depends on the type of stem cells. From infants and adults, research goes well - and it is ethical. Using stem cells from the unborn is both unethical and not going well.
